We research: Robot-assisted gait rehabilitation

SAMK has been researching robot-assisted walking rehabilitation using a lower limb exoskeleton with the region’s work-life partners since 2019. Of particular interest are the effectiveness of exoskeleton training in different patient groups, and the development of technology for measuring the effects of gait rehabilitation together with the University of Tampere.

Batteries on a production line.

We research: Artificial intelligence and recycling batteries

Consumers are used to take their used batteries and piles to over 10 000 recycling points in different shops and supermarkets around the country. The aim is to recycle 45 per cent of batteries and piles, and during the last few years, this objective has been reached. In the recycling process ferromagnetic materials and zinc are separated from batteries and piles. These metals are reused in building, automotive and pharmaceutical industry.
